The Visigoth culture will be removed in the next Crusader Kings 3 patch

The next Crusader Kings 3 patch is a big one: not only does it update the grand strategy game for the release of The Fate of Iberia add-on, but it makes some pretty significant changes that will affect players regardless of whether or not they own the new DLC.
One of those changes is the complete removal of the Visigothic culture.In the latest developer diary, game director Maxence Voleo explains that the decision to remove the Visigothic kingdom was made in order to bring Crusader Kings 3 back in line with the real story.
\"The Visigoths have always been a bit of an odd culture left over from the Charlemagne DLC in CK2, which made the depiction of ninth-century Iberia very inaccurate, but added some fun twist to the region,\" he explains.
According to him, the cultures in Crusader Kings 2 were originally \"mostly cosmetic,\" and since they didn't affect gameplay in any way, it was possible to \"fudge\" history a bit and keep the Visigoth culture well past its historical dates, mainly because it \"added a fun flavor to the region.
\"However, with The Fate of Iberia, that won't work.
Although the Visigothic kingdoms covered all of Spain for hundreds of years, they were wiped out during the Umayyad conquest of Iberia in 711-718.
By the time Crusader Kings 3 began, 867, the Visigoths were simply no longer an important factor in the region.The next patch, free to all Crusader Kings III players, also makes some changes to the geography of the Iberian Peninsula, adds new clan contract options and many other additions and changes.The Fate of Iberia releases May 31.
